the volume is per reviewed

Global Egyptology: Negotiations in the Production of Knowledges on Ancient Egypt in Global Contexts brings together contributions by young Egyptologists from all over the world. The volume overall stresses the interconnection of Egyptology and global political developments, past and present, and highlights the role of multidisciplinary ventures in developing new interpretations. In three parts, the contributions engage with issues of theory and methodology in Egyptology, political and social history of Pharaonic Egypt, late pharaonic and Graeco-Roman ideology and interconnections, as well as national implementations of Egyptology. To understand Egyptology as a global field of engagement, ancient Egypt and its scientific investigation are seen in global contexts. Histories of research on Egypt in global South countries are introduced in the process, challenging the traditional European framework of the field as the model of choice for the future of Egyptology.
